Pet Portraits Videos of the Oil Paintings

We thought it would be a wonderful idea for our clients to see in video format, their painting before it is sent to them so they could have a better idea of what the artwork is like. Hence our page of Pet Portraits Videos of the Oil Paintings! We always send clients photos of the final stage, however its never the same as actually holding the painting in their hands. Hopefully this goes one closer in allowing everyone to really see the portraits in all their glory. We hope you enjoy viewing them!

About the Portrait

Here is the video of Milly & Molly and Purdy’s paintings. Alan, the owner of Milly & Molly and Purdy, came to collect his portraits and it was great to meet him, we were was so happy he was thrilled with the paintings. We are absolutely thrilled with the frames, as you can see they are both framed to match each other using a narrow inner linen slip and the Ornate Pewter moulding which in different lighting is a mix between gold and silver. Its just beautiful. If you would like to see the portraits in more detail, pop over to our oil gallery page and you can also view some lovely testimonial photos of Alan as well as his wife Amanda and the paintings in situ here.

About the Portrait

This is a wonderful family portrait oil painting created by Nicholas Beall of Oliver and his family. Oliver envisaged the kind of painting he wanted with his wife Alex and two dogs Oscar and Molly in a woodland scene where they often walked. Oliver had some professional photos taken for the portrait and visited us with Oscar and Molly so we could meet them al in person. The painting was framed using one of our favourite swept frames in gold and the colours work beautifully with the overall colours of the portrait. We hope you like it and hope you enjoy viewing the video too.

About the Portrait

This oil painting of Sonny was created by Nicholas Beall and filmed in February 2016. The pet portrait was commissioned as a birthday surprise and framed by our framer using the curved gold line frame. Sonny was 16 and a half when he passed away and so is very much missed by the entire family. The recipients were thrilled and you can see a photo of the recipient holding the painting in our testimonials gallery.

About the Portrait

Boomer’s portrait is an absolutely stunning one and the photos and video don’t quite do the painting justice. Nicholas painted Boomer in April 2015 for Kristian Hewett as a surprise gift for his girlfriend. The portrait has been framed using the traditional flat frame and inner line slip which works fabulously.

About the Portrait

In March 2015 Nicholas painted a stunning portrait of King Charles Spaniel Misty for a returning client. The portrait has been framed by our local framer using a now discontinued moulding. The gold colours work beautifully with the painting and we would really recommend gold frame if you have blues and greens in your portraits.

About the Portrait

The painting of Kara was for a returning client and they wanted the portrait to be framed in the same moulding to match the other paintings we had completed for her. Luckily our local framer had just enough moulding as this is another discontinued frame. We do have lots more frames available though!

testimonials.....
Melanie and Nicholas. The portrait of Jessie is beautiful - and the most wonderful thing of all is that you have captured her personality in a really magical way - our brave little retriever with twinkling eyes and a heart of gold! She's just leaping off the canvas to us.You are both stars of the highest quality! I just can't thank you enough for everything - not least your kindness in helping me to sort things out, and your guidance and patience whilst we chose the background. The framer was pleased to see it as much of his work does not consist of portraits of that quality. The framer and I chose the frame easily - he smiled when he saw those little bits of wood or whatever that you enclosed. I hope you like our choice. He'a actually going to hang the portrait in his gallery for the day, and I'm going to take our friends in to see the pictures, and hopefully David will see Jessie up amongst them!! Then I can tell him that it's sold - to him! The teashop are in on it too, and they are going to put a candle on the table etc. I have left your leaflet with details with him. More news after tomorrow!! M and J
